The Ribera del Duero is blessed by a combination of terroir, microclimate and a native grape that gives superb, complex red wines. This is a major red wine producing region of Spain that continues to gain recognition for its vibrant red wines, made predominately from the Tempranillo grape. With a climate that is marked by intensity and extremes, the grapes have typically had to fight against a myriad of climate conditions to bear a bold bottle of red wine. As a result these reds typically exemplify both intensity and strength – ultimately telling their own unique stories of place and time, year after year.
